Dark Chocolate Chipotle Olive Oil Cookies
Another surprisingly great combination is chocolate and spice, especially chipotle. These cookies have a bit of heat, but you’ll find that the Chipotle Olive Oil nicely enhances the chocolate flavor.
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 ½ cups dark chocolate cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp sea salt
1 cup plus 2 tbsp Chipotle Olive Oil
2 cups sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 cup dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375°F. Use 2 tablespoons of Chipotle Olive Oil to lightly grease two cookie sheets. Set aside.
Whisk together flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl, beat together Chipotle Olive Oil and sugar until light and fluffy. Add in vanilla and eggs, one at a time until incorporated. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until all combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
With an ice cream scoop, drop cookie dough on baking sheets about two inches apart. Bake for about 10-12 minutes.
